How to remove 'ads not by this site'

  misticmegisme 23:20 19 Oct 2013

Hi, I've been desperately trying to remove ads that come up that are either named 'ads by browse to save' or 'ads not by this site'. They cause loads of windows to pop up whenever I click on anything. Every forum that I have looked at says to remove any strange extensions on my browser and uninstall and recent programs that I have not installed myself; however, when I try to do this there are no programs that I have not installed myself or are important for my laptop. I'm not really sure what to do anymore or how to get it off. I have downloaded several antimalware and spyware programs to no avail. Any advice would be great!!

Follow this guide but supplement Hitmanpro with Spybot S&D.


Spybotm S&D free link. only use the free version for now instead of Hitmanpro.
